The 2022 Bureau of Meteorology Annual Research and Development workshop is themed on "Water in the Earth System" and will be held in person from the 7th – 10th of November 2022.
Water is at the core of the Earth system interactions, however, closing the water balance in a coupled Earth System Model remains a grand challenge. The development of a seamless coupled Earth system modelling framework has substantial benefits for all domains ranging from improved feedbacks for analysis, forecasting and long-term projections, as well as the accuracy of downstream applications. We invite presentations on modelling, parameterisation, and reducing model biases, along with inclusion of Earth observations for data assimilation and calibration/validation with a focus on the coupled system.
The Bureau's vision is to provide seamless and targeted services across all time scales from past observations to multi-decadal climate projections. Delivering on that vision, through a range of products that meet our customers' diverse needs requires national partnerships with industries and academia, and international collaborations across multi-disciplinary science.
This workshop aims to celebrate the research and innovation and the partnerships as driven by the 10 Year R&D Plan that enable us to provide
The workshop brings together experts from across these fields to discuss the latest scientific innovations and how we can work together to provide the Australian and international community with improved services and decision-making capabilities, resulting in greater impact and value. The workshop is open to all, and attendees are invited to contribute. Talks will be solicited from Australian and international experts across the range of disciplines.
This year's R&D annual workshop will be an in-person conference at Karstens Melbourne, 123 Queen Street, Melbourne Victoria.
Register to attend the conference is now closed.
A pre-liminary program with a list of accepted speakers is now available here. Please note that the program will be updated when titles and abstracts become available.
